COLUMBIA, S.C. - A Holocaust survivor is speaking about healing from the tragedy at the South Carolina State Museum.

Author Eva Mozes Kor speaks Thursday in a lecture sponsored by the South Carolina Council on the Holocaust.

At the Auschwitz concentration camp, Kor and her twin sister were subjected to Dr. Josef Mengele's genetic experiments. They survived, and were liberated by Soviet troops in January 1945.

Now, Kor operates an Indiana museum dedicated to teaching about the Nazis' World War II killings of some 6 million Jews in Europe. She has written books on her experience and was the subject of the documentary "Forgiving Dr. Mengele."

A traveling exhibit from the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum called "Deadly Medicine: Creating the Master Race" is also at the state museum.
